REMEMBER MONEY RAISED IN THE HIGHLANDS STAYS IN THE HIGHLANDS
Why give to us?
We are an independent charity and need to raise money in order to provide extra services and activities like family fun days, buying sensory toys for our toy library, adding to our audio library, running outdoor activity days and providing volunteers to help with shopping trips and reading mail.
These are in addition to providing statutory rehabilitation services funded by Highland Council and NHS Highland.
Here is more information on what we do.
How to donate
Credit or debit card
We are able to accept card donations, simply phone us on 01463 233663 and tell us how much you wish to donate.
Please make cheques payable to Sight Action and send it to Sight Action, Beechwood House, 69-71 Old Perth Road, Inverness, Highland Region, IV2 3JH.
If you wish to make a regular donation this can be done through your bank by setting up a standing order.
If you do any of your shopping online, then it is now possible to raise funds for your chosen charity (Sight Action hopefully!) There are no catches and no cost to you, the customer, as the donations come from the retailers and not from your pockets!
1) Register for free on easyfundraising.org.uk by clicking ‘Create an account’
2) Search for ‘Sight Action - Inverness’ and then choose ‘Support this cause’
3) All you require to register is an email address, and you can opt out of the websites mailing list at the registration stage, so you won’t receive any junk mail or offers etc.
After registering and logging in, you would simply search for the company name you wish to shop with on easyfundraising.org and click on the link to their website to shop as usual. You can also search by a description of what you want, for example – ‘flowers by post’, and a list of participating companies who offer this would display.
Virgin Money Giving
Sight Action is registered with Virgin Money Giving. This enables us to receive funds directly from online donations and sponsored events, anyone who wishes to raise money through a sponsored event for Sight Action can go to Virgin Money Giving.
Just click on the link or image to set up a page and create an event. You will then be prompted to search for a charity by name. Then you will be asked to enter your own details. Once the event is complete Sight Action will be notified of the funds raised.
Legacy – make a gift in your will
Your money can make a big difference to blind and visually impaired adults and children in the Highlands. A legacy ensures that Sight Action can continue to provide a very valuable service. Any Solicitor will gladly help you to arrange a bequest.
